We welcome submissions from debut authors and illustrators as well as those in mid-career. If you wish to submit material, it's important that you follow the submission guidelines.

PLEASE NOTE: our fiction list is currently full and we are unable to accept new fiction submissions for the time being. Please check our website from time to time for updates. However we are accepting picture book submissions (see below).

The volume of submissions we receive means that we can offer editorial feedback only to those authors or illustrators whose work we feel shows promise.  In this instance we will endeavour to respond to you within 4-6 weeks of receipt but it may take longer during busy times.  If you do not hear from us, I’m afraid this means that we do not feel that your work is suitable for us.  If you are submitting your work to other agents, please let us know. There is no reading fee.

MSCLA handles: board books, picture books, novelty books, young fiction, middle grade fiction, young adult fiction.

MSCLA does not handle: non-fiction, poetry

WE ACCEPT submissions by email only; postal submissions will be recycled.


Our fiction list is currently full and reluctantly we are not accepting new submissions for the time being. We continue to review our fiction submissions policy and will update the website accordingly.

Picture Books
We accept submissions by email only.  Please include a short covering letter telling us a little bit about yourself, your writing/illustration background or aspirations.  Please email your work to ensuring that you include the words Picture Book Submission in the subject line.

If you are an author you can send up to three stories as Word or PDF documents.

If you are an illustrator please email a small selection of images as PDFs and a link to your website.
